Resolutions 2014

It’s been ages since I stopped making resolutions or stopped writing them down anyway. But because of my new-found love for making lists, I’m going to make a list of all the things I want to start doing or do differently. Plus it really helps to have a list handy rather than trying to remember everything you decided to do. Most of my resolutions have a starting date of 2nd Jan 2014, for obvious reasons. January 1 is always spent dealing with hangover, gluttony, oversleeping and such other things, the opposites of which always make it to your resolutions list.

So here’s my list in a random order.

  1. Get at least 20 minutes of exercise everyday.
  2. Lose 3 kilos to reach ideal, healthy weight. Make husband gain at least 10 kilos for him to reach a healthy if not ideal body weight.
  3. Read at least 2 books a month.
  4. Blog more, a lot more. And make a conscious effort to focus on crisper, objective and clearer writing. Although since this is my personal blog, occasional frequent rants are allowed. The bottom line is: WRITE woman WRITE!
  5. Become a mistress of bread making. Which means experiment a lot more and document every single recipe till I stumble upon a foolproof one.
  6. Take the weekend home bakery project seriously and start selling at least 2 loaves every weekend.
  7. Do whatever it takes to hold back from reacting immediately to any situation.
  8. Tone down the impulsiveness, short-temper and tendency to mull over things beyond personal control.
  9. Try to be cool and composed. Not the phony, serious, know-it-all bitch like, Just genuinely cool and relaxed.
  10. Try to behave more maturely and not confide in every single person and share minute details on ALL my thoughts and feelings.
  11. Learn to be happy irrespective of job stress, traffic, annoying people, gross men on the streets, irritating autowallas…you get the drift.
  12. Drink vegetable juice everyday (I love the one with tomatoes, carrot, beetroot, celery, lime juice, kala namak and pepper) without being too lazy to make it.
  13. Enroll for salsa, jive or zumba lessons.
  14. Start practising Spanish regularly before forgetting it altogether. Read Pedro Páramo in Spanish to begin with (because currently this is the only Spanish novel I have).
  15. Stop having coffee just because bored at work.

More points to be added by 31st Dec as and when I am inspired by something.
